LES BERGERONNES, Quebec -- Quebec provincial police say all six people aboard a seaplane that crashed on the province's North Shore have died.

Police said Monday the Air Saguenay plane went down in a wooded area on Sunday afternoon. Authorities announced late Monday that all six people aboard had been found and their bodies handed over the coroner's office.

An Air Saguenay official said the Beaver seaplane was taking part in a routine sightseeing flight departing from Lac Long in Tadoussac.

He said the flight was only supposed to last 20 minutes and the conditions were excellent when the plane crashed on Sunday.
